  1. Fence Panel Path Lights

    Preparing for a rustic wedding we came upon the idea to make path lights out of the wood from an old fence that was blown down during Hurricane Matthew. The base on each was about 12" deep and had room to hold a paver brick for stability and a block of wet foam for the flowers that went into it...
  2. Wedding Favors Display

    Much like my path lights this stand was built out of wood from old fence panels. The only new(ish) wood was some plywood used for the base of each tray and a small piece of chalk board.

  6. Wooden TV Remote

    This is one of my favorite projects yet! I flip a boring plastic TV remote into a two-toned wooden beef stick. And what did I use for a battery cover? Another remote of course! It's two remotes in one held together with magnets! Watch the video of me making it here!
  7. Nicks Sticks - Mechanical Puzzle

    This was going to be a fun and challenging puzzle box right from the start, especially since I know a guy named Nick that just loves puzzles! There were two objectives on this one. I wanted to qualify this piece to being something that would fit into my 'Stem to Stern' category, which simply...
  8. Pallet coffee table

    This coffee table was made from a couple pallets I found. Usually there are gaps on pallets but I lucked out and found a couple that had no gaps for the most part except on the ends, no problem just took the skilsaw and cut those parts off. Then I trimmed out the sides with Douglas Fir 2×6 for...

Sides are trimmed out with 2×6's bottom portion trim was from a 2×6 that I ripped with my skilsaw. 4×4's act as legs support for...
  10. Santa's Workshop - Tea Box Puzzle

    Happy New Year Everyone, My Granny first introduced me into puzzles, ...most likely in an attempt to get me to sit still for more than 5 minutes, haha. Though she is no longer on this plane of existance I have chose to remember and honour her with a 10 design series of puzzle boxes that use...
  11. Super Simple Coat Rack

    Hi Guys, This is a super simple one and I hope you don't mind me sharing. We needed a coat rack at home and "we" wanted something rustic with simple lines. Made from a single piece of Oak, a reclaimed floor board, and using only hand tools. Finished with 3-4 coats of beeswax, buffed in...

    the table is oak with a trestle base. It is 6'6" long by 51" wide and can open up to9'6" long with three 1' leaves. The table replaces one from an original set of furniture from my family's home. The old table was cut up to make benches.
  13. Recycled key ring holder

    I took a couple of spare pieces from an old mirror for the doors, used a cigar box for the base and added small tumbled glass beads for the knobs. The hooks inside are vintage NOS, the chain and eye hooks on top are also vintage. I used newer hinges, but have an idea for the next one that...
  14. My first project - Cieling Fan Blade Table

  15. book shelf from a small 1931 hobby lathe

    We sort of have a Wood-Craft/Bohemian/Bookworm thing going for our home decor - see in background of pics above. I recently made a bookshelf from a small 1931 cast-iron hobby lathe and a hunk of reclaimed barn/house beam from here in Toulouse. I cleaned both the beam section and lathe up a...
  16. Lath Console Table

    I was commissioned to make this table after the client saw another table I built out of lath strips for a design contest (a pic is in the Reader's Gallery of the October issue of Fine Woodworking). Along with the table, he wanted the sort of write-up a gallery would do explaining how the table...

  18. Pinch an Inch - Puzzle Box

    I just can't resist the urge to utilize a couple of Yardsticks and turn them into an awesome little puzzle box! To allow for adhesion between parts the back side of the ruler has been planned to a clean and glueable surface. This one is the first in a series of 10 Yardstick designs. This is...
